EnterpriseDB Closes 2012 With Record 62% Sales Growth 
Rising Recognition Among Global Brands of Postgres as Oracle
Alternative Drives Demand for EnterpriseDB Products, Training and
BEDFORD, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/04/13 --  EnterpriseDB, the leading
worldwide provider of enterprise-class PostgreSQL products and Oracle
database compatibility solutions, today announced 2012 closed with a
record 62 percent increase in sales on a customer base that now
numbers more than 2,000 companies. What's more, EnterpriseDB saw an
82 percent increase in recurring subscription-driven revenue,
reflecting the long-term commitments that customers are making to
Postgres and EnterpriseDB.  
EnterpriseDB's success comes as global brands increase their
recognition that Postgres reliably meets their database needs, and at
a fraction of the cost of traditional databases. Highly scalable and
packed with advanced, enterprise-class features and capabilities,
Postgres is replacing Oracle or is being deployed in lieu of
expanding Oracle at some of the world's largest companies.
EnterpriseDB counts 32 of the Fortune 500 list of global companies
and 47 of the Global 1000 among the 600 new customers added in 2012.
These companies include one of the three largest brands in global
hosting, security software and government contractors. Globally
recognized brands in banking, insurance and telecom have also made
significant investments in Postgres with EnterpriseDB.  
"Demand for Postgres has been rising exponentially as more and more
enterprises realize its business value and technical depth," said Ed
Boyajian, CEO and President of EnterpriseDB. "We have also continued
to expand the ecosystem of database features, support, training and
tools that database administrators need to manage large deployments.
2012 was a remarkable year for our company and we look forward to
continuing our promise of delivering exceptional Postgres products
and services for our partners and customers." 
Other key developments for the company from the past year include: 

--  Expanded the ranks of community Postgres expertise at the company with
    the hire of Kevin Grittner, a committer. He joined EnterpriseDB's
    dedicated team of PostgreSQL community contributors. The company
    increased total empl
oyee headcount by 12 percent to meet the surging
    demand of Postgres.
--  Expanded its partnership with HP by making the Postgres Plus Cloud
    Database available on HP Cloud Services and giving developers access
    to a Postgres database that is point-and-click simple to set up and
    manages scaling automatically.
--  Deepened relationship with KT Corporation on their deployment of
    Postgres Plus Advanced Server for non-mission critical needs.
--  Recognized as a "Strong Performer" and leader in the category in the
    Forrester Wave: Enterprise Cloud Database Q4 '12. Achieved top ranking
    (4th place) for second consecutive year in the industry's popular
    Future of Open Source Survey.

Key Product Highlights:
